I don't usually have a travel bug until I take a trip. After I get home, I end up catching a serious case of wanderlust! The problem is travel expenses can add up fast, so despite the benefits of taking a break, frequent trips aren't always an option.

Lucky for you, we've scouted out some great ways to save on travel that could help you stop dreaming about your next vacation and get it on the calendar.

1. Subscribe to travel emails

Dunhill Travel offers plenty of vacation inspiration—and there’s the potential to save up to 70% on your next trip. You can visit their site to search for deals on airfare, cruises, lodging, cars, or vacation packages, but your best bet is to subscribe to their newsletter.

The free, no-obligation weekly email brings you the hottest travel deals and exclusive offers to domestic and international locations. These deals come fully recommended by travel experts, and are to primo locations with great accommodations. I have to offer you this word of warning, though. Receiving their email will increase your desire to travel, but when you're saving up to 70%, it's almost like you can't afford not to take a trip.

2. CityPASS

Did you know most major cities offer discount passes to hit up the local tourist attractions? No, I'm not talking about passes you buy from sketchy guys on the street corner who promise the tickets are real. Tourism departments work out deals with local attractions, so purchasing a CityPASS will save you hundreds of dollars. For example, the New York Pass offers entrance to the Empire State Building, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Top of the Rock, the 9/11 Memorial Museum, and more. These are all the typical tourist stops that would cost you $400 total if you visited each individually, but you can get into them all for only $114!
